Publish Smart Contract

Let me start out by saying that I am new to Ethereum and everything around it. My goal is to create a token, fund my wallet and list the token on an exchange. So far I was able to create and deploy a smart contract but am having a problem depositing my tokens into my wallet and publish the token so it picks up on etherscan. I need help to finish what I have started and take it from the red zone into the end zone. Anyone interested in helping me?
